I love the old shows. They had boundrys. The makers of today's T.V.shows hold NOTHING Sacred.. I'm LIVING REAL LIFE. After a full day of Real Life's twisted cruelty I don't want to sit & watch a SHOW that lined up assaulted women & dead little one's.. I watch tv to ESCAPE all that crap. Take me to MAYBERRY

Kung Fu is about empowerment with truth and insight. It is much more than a martial arts series. It teaches the worth and potential of all people and always leaves me musing deep in thought. I watched it as a new series. I watch it now as a 63 year old woman and this has let me contrast my old and perspective on things. I find I understand this series on many more levels then I did in my teens and early twenties

I'm happy I barely paid anything for the DVDs legitimately. To think that Google expects me to pay almost $80 for something this aged although great is preposterous. This is like the weird situation where Google offers you a price increase for HD quality for a show that wasn't even filmed in HD quality. Overpriced but terrific show. The show however is Excellent. Just stop robbing people Google.
